National Holiday!!!

Today launches the week of national holiday celebrations. I'm sure you're thinking that NEXT week is the week of the 4th and that I've lost my mind, but TOMORROW is my birthday and I like to kid myself into thinking that WAY more people care than actually do! teehee It's a delusion I'm happy to remain in.

The celebrations have already begun. Yesterday at our church we did a "Celebrate America" program which (as part of my delusion world) is subtitled "and Valarie's birthday"! It was GREAT! However, the best part of the whole program came in a person who drove 2 hours just to come see me! My sweet friend Tracy from Greenville!! We met thru the LPM blog and have "chatted" both online and on the phone since we saw Beth Moore in Columbia but yesterday we FINALLY got to squeeze each other's "scrawny" necks!! God is so funny!! He just cracks me up how He brings people together in such creative ways!!

Anyway, I'm hoping to have a great week and I hope the same for each of you! Feel free to throw a "It's Valarie's Birthday" party wherever you are, even if you've never met me!! I know they're having one in heaven!!teehee

Girl you are to funny!!! Happy Birthday!!!......Ok wait a minute I'm SUPER confused about something.....I thought Lucy was the one coming to Celebrate America?? Is her name Tracy? or is this someone else? Lucy left me a comment asking if I would be there but I wasn't sure, it was very last minute and I would've loved to meet her! Forgive my blonde moments and explain please!! =) Have a great day!!
ps- you did an awesome job and whoa......Vern, that song had me in TEARS, I loved it!!

Valarie said...

Lucy is Tracy. Hope I didn't give away a big secret! hahaha

Thanks and I'll pass the word to Vern!

Lucy said...

People please!!! Stop talking about me like I'm not in the room!!!

Valarie, I wasn't going to mention this, but I did notice that they accidentally left out the part about it also being a "Valarie's Birthday Celebration" on my program, but I'm sure it was on the rest of them. I didn't want to make a big deal about it being left off of just one program.

Love you, girl......and Happy Birthday.....almost.
